    The 2012 CMT MUSIC AWARDS just got a little rowdier and funnier as country music superstar Toby Keith and actress Kristen Bell have been tapped to host this year's show. Now in its 11th year, the 2012 CMT MUSIC AWARDS will air live from Nashville's Bridgestone Arena on Wednesday, June 6 at 8PM ET/PT on CMT and CMT.com.

    "Toby Keith and Kristen Bell are a terrific one-two knockout punch for the 2012 CMT Music Awards," said John Hamlin, SVP, Music Events and Talent, CMT. "Toby has been involved with our show every year since its inception and Kristen is as entertaining and witty as any young actor working today. We're thrilled to have them both as hosts for this year's show."

    Country music's first fan-voted awards show will include performances from Kenny Chesney, Lady Antebellum, Little Big Town, Brad Paisley, Carrie Underwood and Zac Brown Band. Additional performers and presenters will be announced soon.

    Fans are able to vote for their favorite acts online at CMT.com and via their mobile devices via CMT Mobile or the CMT Insider app. Voting is open through June 4.
